    Neener, I'm on 21", at 1600x1200. But I'm so opulently rich with pixels
    that I don't even have Outlook expanded to two-thirds of the screen ;-)

    That's what these spam emails keep telling me ;-)

    36" at 3320x1050 here, though it takes two screens to do it. ;-)

    Nah, I'm "retired". I picked up a contract job because I got bored,
    this sounded like fun, and they pay well. ;-) I just got extended
    until May, so I'll have something to keep me busy for the winter.
    ....and I'm out of the most leftist-weenie state in the union (my
    house sold Monday)! :)

    Congrats! Did you decide on TN or KY?

    I have two 19" ViewSonic VA-912's side-by-side at 1280x1024.

    Schematic on the left pane, simulation (Probe) results on the right.

    Thanks. Haven't decided. I've been in NE OH (well, OH is on the
    way) since early August. My wife will come out when the house closes
    next month. We're still trying to get things firmed up.

    VA912? They show this as digital signage.
    I always work dual screen (they're too cheap at work and I'm lost),
    even text editing. I have the document on the primary and the tools
    on the secondary. I use my my laptop's display (1400x1050) on the
    left with a Dell 2005FPW (1920x1050) on the center/right. I have
    another graphics card in the docking station for my Viewsonic P95fb,
    but I can't get it to work.

    You don't get it. The schools are teaching pic solutions, not the
    ability to design state machines. Your hint doesn't make much sense.
    Memory elements are part of the state machine design. You need a place
    to store the present state.

    It is not I who is dense around here.
    Discrete memory + logic is a piss-poor way to design state machines
    these days. We weren't talking about integrated designs.

    krw posted to sci.electronics.design:
    It is indeed a poor way to design one, state diagrams and state charts
    are much better methods. Discrete logic and memory may well be the
    best implementation, however.

    Rarely. There is almost always a better way, more reliable, using
    fewer components, cheaper. All that good stuff they pay us for,
    instead of showing how clever we are by reusing an old EPROM and TTL
    laying that is collecting dust.

    It may be the best way. Example why: Our pellet stove turned itself on
    (!) in the middle of summer. Guess the folks who programmed its 8051
    must have goofed up. If I have my druthers (and some time) I'll rip it
    all out and design it around some 74HC chips.

    There are some things were a spring and clockwork are a better design
    too.

    Actually, in this case you could be right. The first pellet stoves had
    mechanical timers. For some reason I've never heard a complaint from
    their owners ...
